Nathan listened to first Joe then Georgia explain the situation with varying degrees of clarity. The take away seemed to be that someone had charmed Joe’s teacup to say mean things about Georgia, but neither knew who was actually responsible. It seemed to be a growing theme among the Intermediate classes. “There does seem to be a prankster on the loose this year,” he told them, though Georgia, being an intermediate herself was perhaps a bit more aware of that than Joe who had moved up a level this year. “If you figure out who it is, or even just learn any clues, the staff is also looking into this.”

He gave a stern look around (of course, he was Head of Teppenpaw, so he wasn’t entirely sure how well it was interpreted as such among the students nearby) then noted to his prefects, “The incident seems past,” with a nod toward the now normal and inert teacup. “I’ll let you get back to breakfast. If anything else comes up, finite does seem sufficient to undo this prankster’s work so far.” He tried not to look too pointedly at Georgia as he said this. Her method to end the prank had worked; it just . . . had been a bit messier than it really needed to be. He certainly didn’t want her to think he was chastising her for stopping the heckling.

With that, he returned back to his pancakes, keeping a closer eye than usual on that part of the table in case another incident occurred.
